Eight Students Inducted Into Kappa Tau Alpha Honor Society
JONESBORO – Eight Arkansas State University students were recently inducted into the Kappa Tau Alpha (KTA) honor society in a ceremony at Fowler Center on the campus of Arkansas State University. KTA is a college honor society that recognizes academic excellence and promotes scholarship in journalism and mass communication. Membership is a mark of high distinction and honor. The students were Hessah Saad Alqahtani of Saudi Arabia, Ghanem Ayed Elhersh of Jordan, Annah Alizabeth Elrod of Jonesboro, Jillian Griffin of Marion, Christopher J. Lee of Piggott, Miranda Reynolds of McCrory, Mattie Robinson of Paragould and Misato Tsuruta of Japan.
